Damning Text Messages About Fani Willis-Nathan Wade Affair Blocked As Evidence

In what is a big ruling for Fani Willis, some potentially damning text messages detailing when the Georgia District Attorney’s affair with Nathan Wade began won’t be considered by a judge when he rules on whether the top prosecutor should be thrown off the Trump election fraud case.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee said Friday that text messages between Wade’s former divorce attorney Terrence Bradley and another defense lawyer couldn’t be admitted as evidence because Bradley spilled information that was covered under attorney-client privilege.

Ashleigh Merchant — representing Trump co-defendant Mike Roman who’s been spearheading the effort to oust Willis from the case — tried to bring her texts with Bradley into evidence as he testified Friday.

“I sent you a statement saying [Wade and Willis] met while serving as magistrate judges and they started a relationship at that time, and you corrected me and said, ‘No, it was municipal court,’” Merchant asked Bradley while reading from their messages.

McAfee ultimately barred this message and others from being admitted as evidence, finding they were covered by attorney-client privilege from Bradley’s time working as Wade’s divorce attorney.

“He may have told you something, but there is no evidence the client ever waived or allowed him to convey that to you,” McAfee said to Merchant.


Another text between Merchant and Bradley — also Wade’s former law partner — that the judge disallowed was from Sept. 18, 2023, when Merchant asked Bradley if he knew anyone who would make a sworn statement about Wade and Willis’ relationship.

“No, no one would freely burn that bridge,” Merchant said, reading from Bradley’s text to her.
